Working in mills or factories was very badly paid.

A person worked for what was offered.
No one could say what the lowest was, as a person was either employed or not. Unlimited hours, unlimited days
"For example, adult men were paid around 10 shillings per week, while women were paid 5 shillings for the same work, and children were paid just 1 shilling."
The CHURCH was in it too, taking 10% of the Gross earning of the believer.

working in a factory. they didn't have unions or healthcare insurance. they didn't get raises either. it was dirty dangerous work. they didn't have safety features like windows, fire escapes, exit or fire doors, which is why one clothing factory caught fire in NY and killed many workers, mostly women.
